What's the Name of this Type of AWD / 4WD System Test?

A question for people in the know: does this test of AWD / 4WD systems have a name? The test is shown in this link where the new Jaguar SUV is going over alternating ramps such that sometimes 1 or 2 wheels are momentarily in the air: .

I don't care about the ramps, it's the test I'm interested in. This type of test has been done on concrete loading ramps, or on a steep approach, or on the trail when 1 or 2 wheels are airborne.

What's the name (or term) of what is happening in this test? I want to be able to search for videos of other rigs doing this, e.g., to search on
- XYZ test Honda Pilot, or
- XYZ test Jeep Renegade Active Drive Low 4X4?

I don't think it's articulation. I've searched that and it doesn't give results of rigs doing this.

Thanks in advance.

Almost looks like a brake lock type setup.

The ramps look like temporary items.
I've seen better, more permanent, setups on Jeep and Range Rover dealer lots, often with a vehicle parked on them.

However, I'd have to characterize this Jaguar one as a "Lack of articulation test" where at least they didn't have the poor Jag setting there with a hind wheel in the air like a doggie near a fireplug.

[PS: If someone has a spare Jag F-Pace they'd care to donate to a worthy cause, I'd be willing to consider taking it off their hands.... ]

Re: What's the Name of this Type of AWD / 4WD System Test?

It's a test to show how quickly the 4x4 system stops sending power to the airborne wheel. I'd like to know what that is called so I can search for it. Thanks again.

I may have found the term and I'll share it here in case anyone else is interested, it may be a 'cross axle' test.

But wouldn't a braking type "awd" do essentially the same thing?
Stop the doggie legged wheel from spinning?

I wouldn't call it a 4wd test, as it is really a 3wd at the moment.
